    I have a lot of time for the flavour profile of the typical Tormore distillate – this is no exception – defined fruits with a malty backbone and spicy underbelly make for a tasty, but quite complex drinking experience, that changes both over time and with dilution (which some will probably find essential). Evocative and well worth checking out, if you happen to see a bottle – as of writing there’s still a few lurking in the visitor centres of several Chivas owned distilleries.

    • Nose
      Garden fresh, but still quite malty. Fruits arrive first with oranges and tangerines, both of which seem slightly reduced and soured. Then, a compote of sugared fruitiness – jelly babies – but also green apples. Vanilla is fairly pronounced and cask influence fairly high – both young sappy wood and older dry decking. Slight aromas of varnish are joined by burnt cereals, and an earthy nuttiness – walnuts. After some resting, breads and a touch of yeast. The addition of water heightens the bready aromas as well as adding lemon zest.
    • Taste
      An impactful arrival – some will possibly be reaching for the water bottle quickly. Rather more tropical fruitiness on the palate – banana, guava and spit-roasted pineapple – all supported by high maltiness once again – golden corns, toasted cereals, some buttered popcorn. Spicing is quite prevalent here – and growing from the mid to back palate – ginger and pepper leading, some gentle anise in support. Herbalness arrives from resting for a short time – grass and a touch of mint. A few drops of water really helps here, adding in lively lemon drops as well as coconut shavings.
    • Finish
      Medium with pepperiness and fading tropical flavours.
